Bizarre weather

It's been over freezing today - +3 C and raining if you can believe it! And now we're waiting for a very scary reversal; there's a Flash Freeze Warning on right now, and they're predicting it to happen at 3:00, just the time I'll be bussing kids home! Actually, that's an hour from now, and I think it may be arriving ahead of schedule: it's getting bright out, and the wind is really picking up. Here's hoping that the wind can dry some of the water on the roads before the temperature drops to -7. Flash freezes are really scary, right up there with whiteouts, and I hope I can get out to the school and back again without encountering any disasters.

But the weirdness doesn't stop there; it's going to be -9 tomorrow, and then the temperature is going to go back up as we head into the weekend, all the way to +9 and raining on Friday! This is so strange for February, and it's going to play havoc with the second week of Winterlude that's already underway down at the Canal.
